A PERSONAL MESSAGE
FROM MARILYN STARK
THANK YOU, DISTRICT 100! I am humbled by your vote of confidence. I am humbled, too, by this opportunity to represent you at the OK State Capitol. I'm learning more everyday what an honor it is to be in this position. I will do my best to be available and listen to your concerns. I can tell you there is an air of excitement surrounding Oklahoma's future. I believe we not only can be better but we will be better.
I am a pro-life, Christian, Republican, who is concerned by what I see and hear in the world around me and in the political arena specifically. Being challenged by Franklin Graham on our state Capitol lawn in 2016 to get more involved, I had no idea this was the path I would be on just a few years later. This is a new endeavor for me.
I understand that education is key to many of the issues plaguing Oklahoma. I am also keenly aware of the need for reform in mental health, drug and alcohol rehabilitation and our prison system. I understand the need for multiple revenue streams, cutting costs, and balanced budgets. There is a place for government involvement but not for over-reach.
I have always been committed to helping individuals. This intense dedication, passion and devotion fuels my fight for change. I believe my experience equips me to be a part of the solution. Oklahoma has great people who deserve the best we can give.
While I still don't see any easy answers, I do sense a desire from my fellow Representatives to work harder at communicating across the aisle, across the chamber, and across the street to find those answers and build a stronger Oklahoma.
Accountability, transparency, and communication are key! We all have to step up and be part of the solution. Together we can be better! Thank you again for your support and ongoing prayers as we face the challenges that lie ahead.
God is bigger!
- Marilyn Stark
MARILYN ON THE ISSUES
A Stronger, Better Oklahoma
Every life has value. The most vulnerable must be protected. I'll always defend and represent our pro-life values.
Excellent public education is essential to a stronger, better Oklahoma. We have to fund education and stand up for our teachers. We need to take a fresh look at our state expenses and funding mechanisms.
I believe transparency, accountability, and communication are the keys to a stronger, better Oklahoma. I'll work to increase all three areas in our state legislature.
